The Best Cocktail Bars in Bellingham for Every Mood

For delicious, seasonally inspired drinks and an atmosphere fit for Great Gatsby himself, visit Fairhaven Village's favorite art-deco cocktail bar. Cozy up in one of the bar’s high-back booths or enjoy your drink on the heated, covered patio (perfect for people-watching). The food menu features sophistical small bites and tasty desserts.  

Sip a stellar drink under the stars (glow-in-the-dark ones, that is) at this space-themed cocktail bar in downtown Bellingham. Fuel up with a selection of burgers and hot dogs (pick from meat and vegan options!) or play a game of pool. 

Try a cocktail made for Instagram at Snowy River Cocktail Co. in downtown Bellingham. The bar specializes in edible cocktail décor, meaning every drink is a tiny work of drinkable art. Think shimmery beverages, colorful rock salt, and martini glasses encrusted with sweet cocktail confetti. The food menu features burgers, steaks, and salads inspired by Australian cuisine.  

Can’t decide between a margarita, an Aperol spritz, or an old fashioned? Sample a little of each with a cocktail flight from JUXT Taphouse. Choose any of the bar’s four cocktails or pick two and pair them with a sample of beer or cider. A classy sports bar, JUXT also offers a robust food menu with everything from pub fare to steak.  

Because sometimes you just need a tiny umbrella in your drink. L&L Libations delivers tropical vibes right in the heart of downtown Bellingham. Think: Boozy slushies in a tiki glass and hot pink cocktails served with generous chunks of citrus. They also make a mean crunch wrap.   

This hard-to-spot speakeasy is worth the search and perfect for a romantic night out. Though there’s no flashy sign to pull you in, you can find this mysterious cocktail bar on Holly Street in downtown Bellingham. The drinks are strong, the interior is classy, and there’s a covered patio for a not-as-stealthy bar experience.  

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
